Chocolate Moist Cake - Bonding Time For Me and Jei

Summer break for my daughter came. It was August of this year, an exciting month for us to have her at home. While away she said she's been dreaming of tasting once again the chocolate cake I used to bake for her and her sister. She said she tried to look around her place for that same taste that I bake. One time while scouring bake shops in the city for a chocolate cake, she said she came across to this French owned cake shop. To her delight finds their chocolate cake to taste very much close to mine...BUT...according to her my chocolate cake is still the best...ha, ha, ha ...Oh,I love this girl a lot!!! ^_^
And so, I prepared all the ingredients for the Chocolate Moist Cake she requested and I did the mixing of the ingredients with her help. Poured them into muffin pans and bake. I showed her how easy it is to prepare and bake this recipe that she can do it herself too.
Once done and cooled, I frost the muffins with whipped cream, topped each with peaches and lastly sprinkled some chocolate chips and shavings. A couple of hours past and...Voila!!! Her cravings for my cake is over...hahaha....hopefully will last till next summer. :)

Family Holiday of Fun

It was my first time to play 'PINOY HENYO', and I really enjoyed it! Or I'd rather say, we all enjoyed playing that game a lot. What a fun filled afternoon. Eating and chikahan continued till the evening. This day is one of those very special day for us. I just hope my other siblings can join us next Christmas.

I and my family spend Christmas at my mom's together with my brothers and their families.

Chocolate Muffins with Marshmallow Toppings

After several months of not doing any baking at all,
an urge to bake chocolate cake
came to me
last Sunday. It was almost 12:00
midnight, I prepared all the ingredients for
the chocolate cake and all the baking utensils
and baking pans.

I chose that night to bake just a simple chocolate cake recipe and I turned them into muffin pans.
I was so wide awake that I enjoyed Facebook-ing while waiting for the cake to get done until at about 1:30 in the morning. By the time my cake is out of the oven, I'm already very tired and sleepy so frostings was done in the

I got up early to frost the cake with a simple 7 Minute Icing. I twirl some of the white icing on top of every muffin, then top each with some colorful candies and marshmallows.

It looks awesome, definitely awesome and appealing to kids at church when they saw them.
And also, it was so timely that a couple was celebrating their anniversary that very day, so I was able to give them a box of the chocolate muffin cake to bring home.
What a blessed day! ^^

I’ve been hearing about “antioxidants” here and there for a long time now but never really bothered to check it out. But recently, I was challenged to check its meaning in relation to another word I recently heard, “oxidative stress.” What do these words mean? Are they related? Here’s what I found out.

Let’s start with oxidative stress. I found out that it has to do with our breathing. When we breathe, there’s something that goes on inside our bodies without our knowing it. Our body cells produce energy which in turn produces “free radicals” (highly reactive cells) that may cause damage to our other cells inside us – cancer, stroke, heart disease and the like.

Antioxidants are what we need to fight against oxidative stress. These are produced naturally by our bodies to protect itself from free radicals that cause damaged tissues. But our bodies can only protect itself up to a certain extent depending on the following: 1) the person’s genetic makeup, 2) the environment where the person is, 3) the person’s diet and his lifestyle. Thus our bodies need some help to produce more antioxidants to combat all these tissue-damaging diseases and to help in anti aging (protein damage), against cancer (DNA damage), diabetes, heart diseases, etc.

Oxis International Inc. is a top ranking company leading in the fight against oxidative stress. They have pioneered with patented oxidative stress technologies to fight against oxidative stress and boost production of antioxidants. Their primary products are mixed with the super antioxidant compound called, L-ergothioneine (“ERGO”) for its main component. It also uses glutathione, a major antioxidant.

The company’s shares are considered penny stocks but it is ready to soar according to the management as it continues to lead in oxidative stress technology. Aside from its website, Oxis International Inc. is also on Facebook and Twitter.

Egg & Vegetable Soup

I just
thought of taking photos
of some of the meals I prepared
lately like this soup of eggs
and vegetables.

I served the soup in toppings or as a plain soup.

Fruits and Veggies for Dinner

I love veggies. I love fruits. But my family
likes to eat only a few of them.

Their favorite at all times is none other than the very
popular 'fried chicken'. =)) They also love chicken cooked
with lots of 'sabaw' like chicken tinola and chicken sinigang.
They love chicken adobo, chicken cooked ala'steak',
chicken curry, chicken menudo, as long as these
chicken menus has some sauce in it.

But for quite sometime now, slowly, I served more
veggies and fruits in our meals.

I served fruits in shake. I'm so glad they love it this time.
I prepare varieties of sliced fruit as dessert accompanied with a
scoop or a couple of scoops of ice cream. I include some
fruits like grapes for example on our fresh vegetable salad.

They're not eating a lot of these fresh veggies, especially
my youngest daughter, but, they're getting used to having
these kind of food in their daily meals.
